SMART on FHIR Test Data Generator
This generator uses the data files in the
data directory to generate
FHIR test data. The files in the data directory are tab-delimited tables that
can be edited and extended with new data as needed.
All the Python scripts are in the
bin directory, and should be run from that
The main script for general use is
generate.py, the other files in
are basically modules supporting generate.py. The file
most of the constant declarations and utility functions that drive the system
configuration. The file
fhir.py contains all the FHIR formatting code.
From the 'bin' directory, run:
python generate.py --help
To get a general help message.
To generate the test data files in the 'generated-data' directory:
python generate.py --write-fhir ../out --id-prefix "smart"
The primary purpose of this tool is to generate FHIR STU3 transaction bundles as JSON files. Once generated these bundles can be inserted into any compatible FHIR server using it's API. Since you might want to insert the same data into multiple servers or to add different tags to that data resources, we have delegated these tasks to another tool called Tag Uploader available at https://github.com/smart-on-fhir/tag-uploader
